Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are deemed to be some of the most vulnerable countries in the world to climate change. This is in part attributed to sea-level rise, coupled with the small size of these territories amidst growing populations and other development challenges. Of these development challenges, achieving water security remains an enduring issue which will only be further exacerbated by the threat of climate change.
The Global Water Partnership-Caribbean (GWP-C) has developed an online Caribbean Water and Climate Knowledge Platform under its Water, Climate and Development Programme (WACDEP) for the Caribbean. The Platform which was launched in June 2014 has been developed to support the work of the GWP-C WACDEP but more importantly to be a user-friendly resource that provides a range of Caribbean knowledge products, tools and information geared toward building climate resilience in the Caribbean water sector.
